Exam: January 15, from 9:00 until 12:00, in CAB 243.
No calculators
are allowed during the exams.
There will be no marks for class participation or in class presentations.
The final grades are not curved. The minimum passing grade (D)
corresponds to 50%.
The grades of C, C, C+ correspond roughly to 63  73%, the grades of
B, B, B+ correspond
roughly to 74  88%, and the grades of A, A, A+ correspond roughly to
89  100%. I reserve the right to adjust the scale upwards (as to give
better grades).
There will be 6 assignments given during the term, one every two weeks.
Each assignment will consist of 10 problems of equal weight taken from
the text.Sections A1 and A2 have the same assignments.
Assignments are to be submitted in the appropriate Section Boxes on the
3rd floor in CAB, before 3:45 p.m. on the due date.
No late assignments will be accepted.
The first page of
your assignment should contain only your Name and Lecture
Section.
MATH 300
Advanced Boundary Value Problems I:
Derivation of the classical partial differential equations of applied
mathematics, solutions using separation of variables. Fourier
expansions and
their application to boundary value problems. Introduction to the
Fourier transform. Emphasis on building an appropriate mathematical
model from a physical problem, solving the mathematical problem, and
carefully interpreting the mathematical results in the context of the
original physical problem.
Prerequisiteis: Math 201 and 209 or equivalents. Notes: (1) Open only
to students in Engineering, Specialization Computing Science,
Specialization Physics, and Specialization Geophysics. (2) This course
may not be taken for credit if credit has already been obtained in MATH
337.
Policy about course outlines can be found in Section 23.4(2) of the University Calendar.
The University of Alberta is committed to the highest standards of academic integrity and honesty. Students are expected to be familiar with these standards regarding academic honesty and to uphold the policies of the University in this respect. Students are particularly urged to familiarize themselves with the provisions of the Code of Student Behavior (online at www.ualberta.ca/secretariat/appeals.htm) and avoid any behavior which could potentially result in suspicions of cheating, plagiarism, misinterpretation of facts and/or participation in an offence. Academic dishonesty is a serious offence and can result in suspension or expulsion from the University.
